Awards and Scholarships

University at Albany School of Business award WinnersEach spring, we recognize both undergraduate and graduate students in the School of Business with awards and scholarships.

Awards are distributed to graduating students in each of our programs/departments who have demonstrated academic excellence, leadership, service to the School of Business and University community.

Scholarships refer to monetary awards given to returning students. Applicants must demonstrate academic excellence, financial need, and other criteria if specified.

  • Undergraduates: only sophomores and juniors can be considered for scholarships
  • Graduates: only those in the first year of a two-year graduate program can be considered for scholarships

Scholarship money is applied to a student’s tuition bill for the following fall semester.
